The CSX VAT is the keystone project in the CSX National Gateway clearance improvement program. Located in downtown Washington DC. CSX realized they were going to need a highly qualified construction and engineering partner to advance the project through the NEPA approval process and construction. This presentation will recap that 7 year journey, and highlight how Progressive Design Build and extreme collaboration lead to a highly successful project in a dense urban environment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain why PDB was chosen as the preferred delivery method
  • Demonstrate value of co-location and prompt decision making
  • Describe how a 2 phase approach was used to advance this complicated project
  • Describe tools used to engage and inform the adjacent community and stakeholders
